The Semester 1 webinar program run by Dairy Australia and the National Centre for Dairy Education (NCDE) has been launched. Many of the webinars will be of interest to ASCA members, and these will be published individually on the EVENTS LISTING of this website.
The full Semester 1 program is attached here, and some highlights are listed below:
Wednesday 17 February, 2-3pm (AEDT)
Ian Powell – DIAL (Dairy Innovation Australia Ltd), Victoria

The cost of registering is $35 per webinar, or free for season pass-holders. Details of season passes are:
· Season pass for Individuals (half year):$120 for Semester 1, 2016 (allowing unlimited webinar registrations from 1 February 2016–30 June 2016)
· Season pass for Companies (half year):$990 for Semester 1, 2016 (allowing unlimited webinar registrations for multiple individuals from 2 February 2016–30 June 2016)
The fee structure means that if you are planning to register for 4 or more webinars across Semester 1, it is worth purchasing an Individual Season Pass. If you plan to participate in fewer than 4 webinars during the season, it makes more sense to pay for individual webinars at $35 per webinar.
If you wish to purchase a season pass, please email Mani Iyer at Dairy Australia as soon as possible.
For season pass-holders, the individuals will still need to email Jenny Penfold at NCDE to pre-register for each webinar they would like to attend. Attendees have access to recordings of the webinars for up to three months.
